Michigan fans throw towels onto field after controversial PI call
Michigan Wolverines fans threw towels onto the field during Saturday night’s game against Notre Dame in protest of a controversial pass interference call.
The Wolverines were called for pass interference midway through the third quarter as they were up 17-0. There did not seem to be pass interference on the play. Worse, the call wiped out what would have been an interception.

One towel even landed on Cole Kmet after he caught a touchdown for the Irish’s first points of the game.
